Qualifying for our first major tournament since 1958 is edging closer and a dominant Wales performance in Israel has got fans believing that Wales will be competing at France 2016.

Israel hadn’t lost a competitive home match for two and a half years.

Wales are unbeaten in five, and that is a first in any of our euro campaigns, to get to the top of the table tonight.

Chris Coleman opted for a 3-5-2 and from the start Wales looked comfortable and created several good chances in the first half but what looked like a half ending 0-0, Aaron Ramsey combined with Gareth Bale to give us a deserved lead on the stroke of half time.

I expected a strong Israeli second half performance but less than 10 minutes of the half were played and Wales were 2-0 up and Israel were down to ten men.

Bale scored an exquisite free kick minutes before Tibi got his marching orders for taking the Real Madrid star out on his route to goal.

Gareth Bale will grab the headlines with his goals tonight and deservedly so but the team can be proud of the overall performance, it wasn’t scrappy, it wasn’t even a battle it was an excellent all round performance and Wales have made a statement with this resounding win.

There are 5 games to go for Wales with Belguim up next at home in June but surely Wales cannot fail to achieve the dream this time ?

It is looking good and confidence is as high as it has ever been.
